Adam Vaughan, MP


I would like to thank the constituents of Trinity-Spadina for the confidence they showed in me during the June 30th by-election.

Over the past eight years as a Toronto City Councillor, I have had the tremendous opportunity to work alongside the individuals and organizations that make our community the vibrant, innovative, and diverse constituency that it is. It is now my honour and privilege to serve you in the House of Commons in Ottawa.

Politics is about what we can accomplish when we work together. We have done so much already, but there is much more work ahead of us. Going forward, I will work with my constituents, with my colleagues in Parliament, and with partners across Canada toward the development of a National Housing Strategy before the next election. We must also tackle the massive public infrastructure deficit, and work towards building better cities and urban sustainability.

Through consultation, collaboration, and dialogue on the most pressing issues facing Canada and its cities, we can build consensus around great ideas that are not only ambitious but also workable. That is my party’s approach to public policy and an approach that Canada needs now more than ever.

Through hope and hard work we will make our community, our city and our country the best place to live. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff if we can ever be of service to you. Best wishes to you and your family for 2015.

Toronto is home to many of our country’s most iconic artists, musicians, performers and cultural institutions—including our national broadcaster, the CBC, which fulfills a vital role in protecting and promoting our shared national identity.

Under Harper’s conservative government, arts, culture and these cherished institutions have been neglected, and in many cases consciously undermined. The CBC has borne much of the worst of this agenda: budget cuts, vicious partisan attacks, and open disdain from Conservative politicians.

It’s time we had a government that stands up for the arts, nurtures Canadian culture, and supports our national broadcaster.

Adam tables a petition to re-establish & strengthen the federal government’s role in housing

Posted on February 24, 2015

February 24, 2015 | House of Commons

“Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition signed by hundreds of people in the riding that I represent. They are calling on the government to restore funding to co-ops and affordable housing projects across the country.

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation is removing itself from its original mandate. It is eliminating the rent-geared-to-income subsidies that provide housing for so many people in this country. On any given night, 35,000 Canadians are without shelter; 235,000 Canadians annually experience housing problems.

It is incumbent upon the current government, and it is important for the government, according to the people who have signed this petition, to renew these agreements, restore the funding to co-ops and affordable housing projects across the country and to get on with building more housing, not reducing the opportunities for Canadians. I present this petition on behalf of my residents.”

- Adam Vaughan, M.P.
